I don't like waiting that's why I made modified the rules so that I

This is correct and this is also why I suggested to just install all
of the versions, it's hard to tell from code which version(s) of the
kernel are installed then to which version(s) of the firmware might be
needed. So, the safe route would be to install all versions, since
they don't conflict and they don't take up much space.
